    The even mead, that erst brought sweetly forth
    The freckled cowslip, burnet, and green clover,
    Wanting the scythe, all uncorrected, rank,
    Conceives by idleness, and nothing teems
    But hateful docks, rough thistles, kecksies, burrs,
    Losing both beauty and utility.

In their gold coats spots you see:
Those be rubies, fairy read more

The cowslips tall her pensioners be.
In their gold coats spots you see:
Those be rubies, fairy favors;
In those freckles live their savors.

Thus I set my printless feet
O'er the cowslip's velvet head,
That bends not as I tread.

O'er the cowslip's velvet head,
That bends not as I tread.
